Summer Camp Application Procedure

Here is the procedure to complete summer camp registration and finish summer camp with fun:

 

1. 报名 Registration: Please register on our web for this first-come-first-serve service.

How to know if there is opening:

go to http://chinesesummercamp.org/courses

(A/B/C) at the end of each camp mean:

A: how many registered/paid

B: how many quota we had

C: how may in waiting list

If A < B, then there is opening, otherwise, no more.

 

Here is the clarification of terms that may cause confusion:

 

This system is built per school registration.

"School start" and "end" actually means "Summer camp start" and "end".

A "course" is referred to a camp, and vice versa. E.g. if it says to enroll a course, which actually means to register for a camp.

The "Location" and "Classroom" are used interchangeable. Normally in summer camp, location refers to the city of camp.

"Signup Duty" is not needed for summer camp. Just ignore it.

2. 交费 Payment: To complete registration, all required payment should be done online. All payment will be refunded if the summer camp is cancelled. Some camp requests deposit (up to $80), some camp charges camp fee (up to $350). Currently we set tuition $10 as minimum charge. The final camp cost (tuition part) will be finalized until the camp team request is approved around March 1st. In case there is a gap to request more for tuition, we will update the registration web and ask to pay the difference and complete the registration. 日程安排参照过去两年夏令营,营费如有变化,将会在网上调整收费,多退少补。

If you pay online and your registration status is shown unpaid, please contact us ASAP.

3. 批准 Approval: Once the summer camp team plan is approved, students who have registered and paid for a summer camp will be formally approved to attend the camp. There will be no refund once the summer camp team has been formed.

 

4. 签约 Contract: There are few documents that need to be signed, photo-copied and then mailed to us. A set of PDF or JPG format files is preferable.

 

5. 组队 Team building: We will accept applications for chaperoning and form multiple teams from either locals or people nation wide.

 

6. 购票 Ticket booking: We will provide preferable flight schedules for student convenience.

 

7. 签证 Visa service: We may provide discounted visa service for local students: this includes requesting invitation letters from the summer camp sponsor, proof-reading visa documents and applying for visas in a group. For students in other state, we only provide invitation letters.

最好自己用家人邀请信申请。因为日期可以3-6个月。如果按夏令营10-15天申请,那么10年有效的签证就是每年可以停留10-15天,而不是3-6个月。极个别营员没有国内家人可以帮助,才由夏令营主办方协助,提供邀请信。
